Musical Background
My parents both have been professional classical singers. So I grew up with a huge load of classical music. At the age of 6, I began to take classical singing lessons. I kept it up for 4 years. At the age of 9, I started taking classical piano lessons, which I quit after 4 years. When I was 13, I got tired of all that classical stuff and I bought myself an electric guitar. I tried to teach myself to play on it but soon gave it up for other important reasons I got when I am a teenager. In the following years I worked as a singer in different rock bands. In 1989 I joined the band "JR Cruz" from Singen, Germany. First I was the singer of the band, later I became the man behind the keys. I was playing for a very long time in this band (which later was renamed into "Soilent"). We played a lot of concerts over the years. A special highlight was making the concept and the music for a musical called "Muellers Buero". The play was performed by a theater group and we played the "soundtrack" on a mobile stage at the same time. Up from 2009 I was two years part of a very interesting metal project (mix of Industrial/Groove/Thrash Metal), founded by a former guitarist of Debauchery.
In 2015 I had the great honor and pleasure to arrange and do the studio recordings of all the keyboards for the new album of Burden of Life.
